True to our mandate, on Wednesday, June 29th, the members of Comité vert enjoyed un vrai pique-nique écologique to mark the end of the year.
Nourished by delicious tamales made by Carmen, one of the members of the Committee, we then walked over to Dawson College where Chris Adam welcomed us. Chris, who is the heart and soul of the Living Campus Project at Dawson, facilitated the next part of our activity. With passion and energy he spoke of education at Dawson, care for the students and all creation. We then spent a few moments in the Peace Garden which made our hour together very special.
We are half through our programming year and we are off to a good start. Our main focus being action as follow-up to our Corporate Stance commitment for climate action around the Paris talks, we have been participating as a Province in the CRC Post-Paris Conference cross Canada event. Sessions have already been held in Ottawa and Toronto and dates for Montreal, Kingston, Halifax and Vancouver are soon to be announced. We are also continuing to work on dates for Charlottetown, Kamloops and other Congregation of Notre Dame connected locations. We are waiting for the video version to be ready, so that it can be distributed to those who were not able to attend the ‘live’ version and then planning can begin for the Congregation of Notre Dame reflection day connected to the conference. In addition, we have been engaging in advocacy with the federal government as they consult on the content for the national plan on climate action that will be released at the end of this year. Many of us used the on line form to contribute our opinions electronically and requested, attended and spoke at Town Halls hosted by MP’s and community groups.
We are dedicated to our mission of liberating education
through prayer, work and community.
We follow Jesus, the Light
of the world.
